Mr Walker told viewers today that his last day on the show would be two weeks today, on Tuesday May 17, and said it still felt a bit surreal to be leaving.
Asked by co-presenter Ms Nugent if he would be having a leaving do, he said: “As you very well know I like other people’s parties – I’m always slightly awkward when it’s something to do with me. I’ll leave it for you to organise.
She told him: "I’m not going to buy you a present but I might bake you a cake – or maybe a tart.
"A tart would be lovely, thank you,” he replied, adding: “Six more three o’clockers, then I’m out of here.”
He said it was nice to think he was going to get some more sleep, adding: “Thank you to everyone who has sent so many lovely messages.”
Mr Walker, who was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing this year, is leaving to take up a new job with Channel 5 News.
He said not only will he get to present the news, but he will ‘also host a whole range of programmes right across the channel too’.
He will replace Sian Williams on 5 News, who recently announced she was leaving the role.
